Do you remember this family-favorite, prayer-poem by Mary Dixon Thayer, written in the 1920’s and made popular by Archbishop Fulton Sheen in the 1950’s? Share it with your family!mary.jpg

To Our Lady

Lovely Lady dressed in blue

Teach me how to pray!

God was just your little Boy,

Tell me what to say!

 

Did you lift Him up, sometimes,

Gently, on your knee?

Did you sing to Him the way,

Mother does to me?

 

Did you hold His hand at night?

Did you ever try

Telling stories of the world?

Oh! And did He cry?

 

Do you really think He cares

If I tell Him things --

Little things that happen? And

Do the Angels’ wings

 

Make a noise? And can He hear

Me if I speak low?

Does He understand me now?

Tell me -- for you know!

 

Lovely Lady dressed in blue

Teach me how to pray!

God was just your little Boy,

And you know the way!
